50 Benefits of RAW HONEY!

Image from Every Day Health

Someone once told me that I was like a little bumblebee, not because I had a sharpened stinger and I knew how to use it – but that wherever I landed I made everything a little bit sweeter.

As I dive deep in to my gut and digestive issues and autoimmune flubbers that arise, I have once again landed on some healing benefits of RAW Honey. When I say RAW, I mean RAW! Ahem, because I hate to burst your bubble but some honey is not…real! WHAT?! Truth. (Commercial honey loses all of its microorganism and characteristics, never crystalizes and thus is merely a sweetener.)

Q’s + A’s? Here you go!

  1. What is RAW Honey? // Real honey is in the most natural form possible: unprocessed, unpasteurized and maintains all of its healthy properties. Just like you learned in kindergarten, the bees collect nectar from different wildflowers and blossoms. Then the bees carry this nectar to the hives and stores into cells of the beeswax which they have prepared before. Once the nectar is stored in the cells of the honeycomb, the cells are capped with beeswax. Then the bees, use their wings to fan the water content from the nectar. As a result, over around two week period, nectar matures and becomes honey. *NOTE: Minimal filtration maintains the particles of bee pollen, but removes the heavy solids. : ) **NOTE NOTE: Crystallization is natural process of honey and can be used to prove the good qualities of honey.
  2. Is Raw Honey better than Manuka Honey? // Raw (unprocessed, unpasteurized, unfiltered) honey is better for you than commercial Manuka Honey because most commercial Manuka Honey has been heat-treated and pasteurized. Processing honey in this way removes most of the goodness of honey.

So WHAT, can you do with this magical gold?
